Corona Virus: The Czech Minister of Health proposes to the government to declare a state of emergency in the country again

According to the chief hygienist of the Czech Republic, Pavla Svirinova, the declaration of a state of emergency will enable, among other things, to help doctors in hospitals.

The Minister of Health of the Czech Republic Adam Wojciech will propose to the government on Monday declaring a state of emergency in connection with the epidemic of a new type of coronavirus.

According to Wojciech, the reason is mainly the current situation in hospitals.

“This is because of the hospitals,” health spokesman Daniel Koppel told iDNES.cz. Currently, 4,885 people are hospitalized in the Czech Republic with COVID-19, 715 of whom are in serious condition.

Some hospitals are so overwhelmed that they have had to cut back on planned care and seek help from the military. Starting Friday, the soldiers will provide assistance in 24 hospitals and social facilities in the Czech Republic, and from Monday they will provide assistance in 15 others.

On Friday, after the cabinet meeting, Minister Wojciech stated that declaring a state of emergency was not necessary. He said last week that it would be necessary if, for example, the government wanted to restrict the movement of people, adding that this also came from his ministry’s consultations with lawyers.

According to the chief health expert of the Czech Republic, Pavla Svirichenova, the declaration of a state of emergency will enable, among other things, to help doctors in hospitals facing the onslaught of patients infected with the virus.

The Czech Republic declared a state of emergency due to the Corona virus first on March 12 and then on October 5 last year. It was extended several times and expired on April 11 this year. It took 254 days. Measures against the spread of the disease are currently being issued under the Pandemic Act, but will expire at the end of February 2022.

Vaccination is also mandatory in the game

The Czech Republic’s chief hygienist, Pavel Svirinova, supports mandatory vaccination against the novel coronavirus. She stated this on Monday morning in an interview with Radiožurnál station.

According to Svrčinová, vaccination is currently the only way to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Unfortunately, there is no other way than the method of compulsory vaccination,” she said.

Austria plans to introduce compulsory vaccination from February. Reuters reports that Indonesia, Micronesia and Turkmenistan have so far done so.

The government of the incumbent Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis decided on Friday to tighten measures against the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Among other things, it introduced mandatory testing for unvaccinated employees and a comprehensive weekly test for primary and secondary school pupils and students, and recommended work from home for civil servants.

According to Svrčinová, the effect of pandemic measures is manifested in a delay of one to ten days, and further tightening of the rules can occur after this time.
